Nope that trail is Matterhorn. A cool trail for sure. PBR is a bit more hectic.fathead said:thanks pdh
and renegade, i started riding there in 2003. did you mean to say radio flyer has or has not been ridden since 2002?
was PBR the one where you got off at the top, stayed skier left on the top of the ridge and came out in the subdivision way west of the base area?
That's the feeling I've got from listening to the staff. I have heard that "RF will reopen andwormvine said:It is quite possible that Vail may not officially open 94' DH at all. But they won't stop you from riding it. It's been that way before.
Maybe, I will still ride 94 from time to time for sure.pdh said:That's the feeling I've got from listening to the staff. I have heard that "RF will reopen and
94 will be officially canned."
I'd like to plan a day to go ride at Vail. If someone hads the time, can someone show me around the mountain? I know of some of the trails, but I'd really like to get to know a few more. Vail is one of my favorite places to ride.Renegade said:The trail I recall known as PBR is what you rode after radio flyer. RF dumped you out on a service road switchback, you ride the rode down untill you get to a small lift station, PBR started just behind and to the right of that station.
There may be conflicting names then. The Radio Flyer I have been shown actually starts right above the tower and goes past it on the right side of the tower. It is overgrown and covered in deadfall.Renegade said:Radio flyer is the trail you access by heading west once you leave the lift, like you are heading over to do matterhorn. It starts near a "radio tower" building. A little ways down the trail, there is a small "road gap" jump. I had heard it was ridden for a few years after the 2002 shutdown, but I'm not surprised that it might have fallen into dissaray, as maintaining the pirate trails was not something you wanted to be caught doing back then.
You get a $15.00 voucher for lunch for $5.00 more.fathead said:wormvine or pdh, do either of you know anything about the lift ticket/lunch combo?
I just looked at bike haul prices for this summer, $25, and right below it said for $30 you get bike haul and $25 towards lunch. do they really give you a $25 food voucher for an extra $5. i know stuff is expensive up there, but sure seems like a bargain to me. and a good way for vail to make sure a bunch of smelly DHers stink up their nice food establishments
They did the $11 tickets last year. You have to have had a ski pass but a good deal for sure. I was surprised that they did it this year. I am not sure what their motives are...pdh said:Vail seems to be doing whatever it takes to get dhers back.
Eleven dollar lift tickets and lunch coupons, not bad
